Party buffets? Great way to save money!

So if you love entertaining friends and family like I do you are going to want to host a lot of parties at your home! Of course after a while this can get pricey and pushy to your wallet. Well not every dinner has to be over the top but try something fun and different that causes people to interact with each other and have fun while doing it. Such as a buffet style of food for your guests. My favorite places to go for bulk is Costco and Sams Club! You can buy bulk of stuff and save lots of money. And let the party be themed! Such as “Taco Night” “Nacho Night” “BYOB which is build your own burger or any kind of food. Best part about a buffet have everyone bring some kind of side dish! Like if its nacho night have everyone bring a topping and you buy the cheese and chips! This is so much fun to do and you save money!

Here’s a pic for pizza night. Have everyone buy a different pizza and bring it OR you can make your own dough and sauce and everyone brings different toppings and you make your own pizza. And of course just make a big salad for a side for everyone!


This BYOB build your own burger is so much fun! Just buy patties and buns in bulk at costco and have everyone bring toppings and condiments. This is really fun to do. Also you can have side dishes available such as a potato salad, salad, buy in bulk french fries. Once again Costco!



Next on the list is a Mexican night or taco/burrito night! Have everyone bring some rice, beans, sour cream, anything that would be great for Mexican food. Than have taco shells and tortillas ready for everyone.


Literally my FAVORITE buffet for dinner parties is NACHO night! Omg, I love nachos like non other. You can go to costco buy a big bag of chips ($3) then buy their nacho cheese ($9.99) and have everyone bring toppings to go on top of the nachos! Simply amazing and so much fun.


My sister has done this for her birthday party once and this is fun to do as well. It’s like a DIY dessert table and it could be anything. Build your own cookie, smore, cake, whatever you can think of this is so much fun once again.Or you can have all different kinds of treats and have people bring little cupcakes, candy, chocolates, etc.


Italian buffet! Make all different kinds of pastas and have everyone bring stuff for salad and french bread and all different kinds of sauces! So yummy and fun.You can make meat balls on the side as well!
